Our correspondent further gathered that the gunmen also rustled cows and carted away some properties, reasonable amount of money belonging to the deceased and some community members.

 

Efforts to get the reaction of the Sokoto State Police Command on the incident proved abortive as several calls and text messages sent to the Command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Sunusi Abubakar, were neither answered nor replied as at the time of filing this report.
